we would hear opinions that is broken down. not the least of which is the technological revolution over the last 20 years. >> host: have lost gate keepers of news? >> guest: that is a central theme that that we call as the honored that term is simple fact the way that information could become public information is that you could argue you don't need dates so what becomes newsworthy and what goes by role is very different from just prior to this area but we cannot just compare what we have now to what preceded the 50 years of broadcast news. hysteric -- historically we have five media regimes in which the relationship between the media citizens so if you want to assess what is good or bad you need to look not just out of the lobster gained which is the era of realism but banda a late 18th-century that that issue in front of us what is good about it and had to maintain or limit what is bad. >> host: go to do the title "after broadcast news" would have lost as opposed to abc, cbs, nbc era? >> guest: we lost the significant thing. but when we lived in the era of the '50s and '60s throu

driven by a variety of things, not the least of which is the technological revolution with we have undergone. >> host: professor, have we lost important gatekeepers of news in your view? >> guest: i think that is one of the central themes of the book, which is that we now live in a world that we call somewhat nerdly multiaxiality. what we mean by that term, the ways in which information can become public information and paid attention to by a lot of people is much more fluid, there are many more gates than there used to be. i argue you don't need gates because the walls have come down. so where we get information from, what becomes newsworthy or important, what goes viral is very different from what used to be the case. in the period just prior to this era. the other point we're trying to make is that we can't just compare what we have now to what preceded the 50 years of broadcast news. if you look more historically we have actually had four or five different media regimes, as we call them in which the relationship between the media, citizens and political elites, have been differ
the media technology to build this transnational spiritual community, and it's a fascinating story that few people know about. so it would be fun to bring that to hopefully a wide audience. >> host: you're finishing it but self months before at it published. >> guest: not until the end of 2013. >> host: we have been talking with university of pennsylvania professor dr. john l. jackson, jr., here's the book. racial pair nowa, the unintended consequences of political correctness, this is book tv on c-span2. >> now from the university of pennsylvania. we discuss the new media regime replacing professional journalism. this interview is part of book tv's college series. >> book tv on c-span2 is on location at the university of pennsylvania in philadelphia. we are in the annenberg school of communication currently, and joining us is the dean of the an an annenberg school. what is the annenberg school of communication? >> guest: we're a free-standing school and we do research, both research for the public con expulsion for scholarly works and ph.d training and undergraduate training on the way in
akin. [laughter] a member of the house committee on science, space and technology. it's true. he's the kind of science committee. then there was the theory that romney was a very good candidate , didn't say things people understood, didn't connect with people very well and was somewhat awkward. for instance, when he went to michigan, his home state for that primary and said the trees for the raid had been michigan. the actual quote was i love this state. it seems right here. the trees at the right height. away from here i find no trees to please. no trees at such a perfect height as these. for me i cannot ever be at ease to grow one's knees. or two tall trees that splinter group wisconsin sure has bragging rights on cheese and colorado is where they take your skis. connecticut of course has lyme disease. [laughter] and none of these semi-prepared to say is currently here with the perfect perfect height of trees. [applause] and according to that theory, romney just was in a very good candidate. they should have nominated somebody else. and there is also a theory they were demograp
. but that measure co2 per square mile in 2001, scott bernstein at neighbor for technology in chicago said would have been in measuring co2 per mile and the measures co2 per person. we can choose to live in places where we pollute more or less. if you per household, bad endocrine just flip, absolutely change places. by far the healthiest place to commence in within the city. and have nice furniture to fossil fuels of people in dallas, for example. to use it to the electricity. they are heating and cooling neighbors. apartments are attaching, but more importantly is the less driving their doing. transportation is the greatest single contributor to most civilians greenhouse gas. and our daily lives the biggest rooster can make i built the house in washington d.c. and the strictly in the shows on sustainability. because solar panels, hot water heater, super insulation, bamboo flooring. bible with earnings does this supposedly about her name and may contributes less co2 to the environment than if it were left to decompose naturally. but of course i have the energy lightbulbs. to change an entire house to
the technology industry has a lot of clout he wal-mart and monsanto are really pumping up in some ways. one of the ways was genetically engineered seed corn. you may remember this from last summer. and a lot of other supergroups because they say they want to be sustainable, cannot buy this sweetcorn. when wal-mart buy something, it creates a market. and monsanto plans to have 40% of the market be the genetically engineered variety. and of course, it will not be labeled. and then we really need to look at the food system and the lobbying records that wal-mart has. the model is basically putting pressure on suppliers to cut costs and i go into great detail in "foodopoly" to go into this. we don't have a lot of time to go through this, but one of the things that wal-mart has done effectively is by most of its products, whether it's food for consumer goods and a high percentage of products come from the developing world, especially china. and these grain traders were the biggest proponents of globalizing food system. they find it advantageous to process and grow food that is either where the la

technologically and remains so until rusher retired at the end of "national review" at the end of 1988. his successor said when he came in afterwards, it was still operating in the 1950s, that is in '88-'89, still operating in the 1950s with carbon paper and secretaries who were treated as secretaries. i guess that's a polite term for sexist, and it's not an important point. the more important be point is, you know, carbon paper. [laughter] rusher would not have been keen on social media himself were he still alive and active today, but he would have appreciated it. to get back to the point, it's an important one, this was an era when people communicated on paper. and they communicated at length on paper. that was a tremendous resource for my research at the library of congress where rusher's papers are. there's been sufficient evidence, excuse me, sufficient interest in the rusher papers among scholars who are interested in the development of the conservative movement who i think more often than not are liberals. in the rusher papers that they were moved from the satellite location out in
technologically and remains so wendell rusher reviewed at the end of 1998 and his successor publisher said he came in right afterwards and was still operating in the 1950's and '88 and '89 and the 1850's with carbon paper and secretaries who were counted as secretaries. the more important point is carbon paper. it wouldn't have been keen which he still alive and active today but he would have appreciated it it's an important one this is the era people communicated on paper. they communicated that flank on paper. it was a tremendous resource for my research of the library of congress where rusher's papers are. there is insufficient evidence come sufficient interest in the rusher papers among scholars who were interested in the development of the conservative movement, who i think more often than not are liberals. in the rusher papers that they removed several years from the satellite location in suburban maryland to the actual james madison building on the riverside of the hell that is how much interest there has been in the russian papers. if you haven't - dili book about him and as far as i know
, which are connected to the complexity of society by rapid technological change because rulemaking, as eleanor ahlstrom has demonstrated in her work as an effort to stabilize expectation about the future and the way out was to think about governance because governments is about the things that government does that helps people stabilize their expectations about the future and manage the risk that coming and uncertain time. avoidance of this concept called the government. the government does this, the government does that. society without god. the government becomes the idol. so whatever suit just for the conservatives who really want to restore this notion of the original principles of limited government has to focus on teaching the science association, took those mother son and in teaching the science rulemaking that allows governors i would welcome any thoughts or comments the panel had on that and i think professor berkowitz for raising that issue. >> of course i agree with the last part of your remarks, which is we should do what is in our power to encourage burkes little plato
and talked and one irony of polling right now is unlike a lot of the other technological advances, it's getting harder to conduct a sample that actually reflects the general population, and the reason is, it's cheaper than ever before to gather a lot of data. but think about how you do it? you do it with a phone sample. if you good polling operation you would use a random set of area codes. that's how your figure out geographical. now every one of my students has a cell phone and they give you the phone number and it's 213, and it's 405, and they live in handover, new hampshire so you lost track of who actually lives there you have rich people with call waiting who aren't going to answer calls from strangers. you have lonely people who will. right? and you've now got a lot of young people without land lines at all or they may have two cell phones or a land line and a cell phone. so now we have to move away from the assumption that one land line per house hold. so he talk about how they're actually going back some cases to the methodology they started with, which is in person, going ba
property against technology, and given that we're on the preferences of that funny divide where the tech sector is usually intellectual property in a way that doesn't compensate the people who make it. there are many other conversations to have about this at a later date. we are watching a lot of transition here. there are opportunities for all kinds of governmental and nongovernmental partnerships to come and, you had asked about other countries. france, and most of european union support netbook agreements. britain let go a long time ago and heard the publishing industry. prices set and firm. every bookstore maintains the same price. it allows -- >> are you part of the? >> not at all. i to think it hurts independent booksellers and business throughout your. i think it cuts publishers throughout europe and is provided riders -- >> one of the things that is maddening at the moment, and it partly brings out the web goes is a we should just -- everything should be free. >> this is the divide we're looking at right now. >> microsoft and people wanted to get rid of copyright. how can you hav
in a now-forgotten technology. the professor enters the room, positions herself at the head of the table and asks the student on the right to pass the papers around. only half a page of type, 165 words. but the 165 words on those pages contain the magic beans that will grow at physicists which will shay call a toy universe. those 165 words are nearly incomprehensible, but they contain a set of five simple rules you've never heard of before, piano's axioms. and every week for the next nine months you will be told to dedrive a new corollary from those -- derive a new corollary from those axioms. it isn't easy. in fact, it is barely doable. despite your brain power, only one in ten of you will be able to handle the task, and those who are able to tackle the homeworker assignment will monopolize the attention of the girls in the class, girls desperate for help with their homeworker. but what comes spilling from piano's axioms is amazing; addition, subtraction, square roots and rational numbers. the entire mathematical system that it took you eight years of grammar school and more than eight
international 2013, the technology show. we will be back next week with more programming from this con convention. >> david maraniss began researching and writing his tenth book "barack obama: the story" in 2009. he traveled around the world in the his research including trips to to kenya, indonesia, hawaii, kansas and chicago. booktv documented the kenya trip with the author. next, david maraniss sits down with booktv to discuss his book. we show you extensive video from his trips throughout the program. this portion of the program is about an hour and a half. >> author david maraniss has been researching and writing his tenth book, "barack obama: the story." for this project "the washington post" associate editor and pulitzer prize winner traveled across the world to kansas, indonesia, kenya, hawaii, new york and chicago. david maraniss spoke with relatives of president obama in kenya and discovered the president's african ancestral history. he toured the houses where young barack obama lived in indonesia and found the kansas family homes and sites where his mother's family began. an
